Temperatures are rising throughout the world. Newfoundland and Labrador is already 1.5°C warmer than the historical average and some areas of the province could be almost 4°C warmer by mid-century.
The map below shows how temperatures at sites throughout the province are expected to rise in winter and summer. It was based upon a study completed by Memorial University for the Office of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.
This application was created by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador's Office of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. It is designed to provide a broad overview of how climate change is impacting Newfoundland and Labrador, and facilitate meeting curriculum outcomes for the high school course Environmental Science 3205.
